More than a dozen restaurants on Giralda Avenue’s “Restaurant Row” in downtown Coral Gables will again offer dining under the stars on Feb. 6 from 7 p.m. to midnight.

The festivities happen every first Friday of the month through March. During Giralda Under The Stars, the avenue is closed to traffic so that restaurants and bars can fill Giralda with tables and chairs.

February in Coral Gables is “Romance Month” and next month’s theme is romance.

On Feb. 6 from 7 p.m. to midnight, there will be performances by Alma de Tango and members of the Fred Astaire Dance Studio.

“[They will] bring “dances of love” to the streets, while attendees dine at one of the 14 delicious restaurants and enjoy the beautiful weather,” spokeswoman Denise Galvez said.

Roses will be distributed to couples dining, as well as chocolate samples from Peterbrook Chocolatier.

Participating restaurants this year include: Castelluccio, Divino Ceviche, Ikura Sushi Lounge, La Dorada, Miss Saigon Bistro, Pete’s Authentic Cooking, Spritz of Coral Gables, Talavera, The Bar, The Local Craft Food & Drink, and newcomers Vicolo Italian Kitchen, GreenLife Miami, and Threefold Café.

Most restaurant menus are available online and reservations are recommended. Participants can park in the municipal parking garages and there will also be valet stations at each end of the street. No tickets are required to attend the event.

And for those who need someone to take care of their kids and enjoy a night on the town? Gallery Night Kids’ Club at the Gables Museum has it covered.

“Kids ages 5 to 12 can enjoy arts and crafts, storytelling, games and more just a block away from the event! The cost is $25 for Museum Members and $30 for members,” Galvez said.

Those interested are required to register by calling 305-603-8067.
